What happens if you try to run a game that does require SoftMPU?
(don't know what old stuff you play, but I assume you're running SoftMPU for a reason - I generally test for intelligent mode with Ultima 6)
As I mentioned, all MT-32 games sound great in MUNT. The reason I mentioned Quake was to make a point that AWE64 is working.
I just ran AWE64 DOS based diagnose utility, and it fails at setting IRQ 5 to my card. I even moved the Adaptec to a different PCI slot, and it did not help.
I think I have isolated and fixed the issue, went into the BIOS, and under the Resources Controlled By, changed it from Auto to Manual, and under IRQ 5, changed it to Legacy ISA for my AWE64.
Upon a reboot, I no longer get the SoftMPU error message, and when I also run AWE64 DOS diagnose utility, no conflict is reported.
